Re: Consider OCP’s impact on city, July 31 letters.

I have lived in Richmond for over 30 years. I finally could not accept the way Richmond has gone to the dogs, and I am afraid South Surrey is heading that way, with allowing the high condo building to go on now.

Well, that’s one of the reasons I moved out here. The Richmond council had been bought by off-shore money and developers. With the dollar, they tell the council what do.

It won’t be long, there won’t be a piece of green grass anywhere – just a cement city, no fresh air, no farms.

I am very disappointed city council has let this happen – like Vancouver, Richmond, now South Surrey…

I sure hope I do not have to move again. So far, I love it here and the people are great out here.
